iPad Pro screenshots?

Ralph’s idea was good though, you could export snapshot from a card window that’s the real size. But yes, scaling up is what I’ve done as well.

One thing to be wary of is having complex splash screens. You will find that if you support every required size you could reach 30 MB of app space, before the app has even opened. These days I have a flat color that is the average of the title screen, then let it cut to the title screen. Flat color PNGs take up little space.

I did it for a recent App update using the iPad Pro simulator in Xcode 8 on iOS 10.11.6 on a retina iMac. The previous time I did it for an App update I took a standard iPad retina screenshot and scaled it up in Preview - the reviewer in the App Store didn?t notice it was very slightly blurry...
